Global Nanolithography Equipment Market 2016-2020

About the Global Nanolithography Equipment Market

Nanolithography is the art and science of using lithographic techniques — like photolithography, nanoimprint lithography, X-ray lithography, and extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography — to produce nanostructures and devices. Nanolithography equipment is used to print complex nanometer-scale circuit patterns onto silicon wafers. This printing process is one of the most critical and expensive steps in wafer fabrication. The focus of the semiconductor industry is, therefore, toward the development of cost-efficient enhancements to production technology. The cost involved in R&D and in the development of new nanolithography equipment is very high. Thus, the nanolithography equipment industry is characterized by the presence of only a few primary suppliers holding the majority of the market.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global nanolithography equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 0.16% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Nanolithography Equipment Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global nanolithography equipment market: ASML, Canon U.S.A, Leica, Raith, and SUSS MicroTec.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Rolith, Nanoink Optical Associates, Nanonics Imaging, JC Nabity Lithography Systems, and NIL Technology.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The recent rise in number of fabless semiconductor companies will aid in the growth of this market during the forecast period. Semiconductor companies are going fabless to reduce overhead expenses in operations maintaining foundries. Semiconductor companies are focusing more on the design and development of their solutions. They outsource their fabrication and other foundry-related activities to companies that specialize in manufacturing, assembly, and testing of semiconductor ICs. This has resulted in 1:11 ratio of foundries and fabless companies in the global semiconductor market.”

According to the report, emergence of advanced consumer products will drive the growth of this market. The consumer electronics market has undergone massive transformation since 2010. Feature phones have been replaced by smartphones, PCs by laptops, and now laptops by tablets. Cathode ray tube (CRT) TVs are being replaced by light-emitting diode (LED) and smart TVs. Manufacturers and application developers are attempting to take this transition further by interconnecting all these household devices and creating a single unit called smart home, which can be controlled by applications installed on smartphones.

Further, the report states that one challenge negatively affecting this market is the rise in cost of lithography functions. The semiconductor industry is undergoing transitions in technology, because of the reducing node size, which is affecting the lithography process. Due to such changes, industries are adopting high-resolution techniques, leading to an increase in the cost of lithography. The double-patterning technique is one such technique that increases the litho cost per function and the overall cost of patterning.
